Water Project Updates

$17.3M capital works project

Proudly funded by the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland and Local Government Grants and Subsidies and Building Our Regions Programs in association with Tablelands Regional Council.

A new reservoir, pipework and upgrades to intakes were completed in 2022.

Construction of the 11km pipeline to connect Millstream Estate with the Ravenshoe Water Supply Scheme commenced in early June 2023 and will be complete by the end of 2024. Residents adjacent to the pipeline will be notified by the contractor as work progresses. Driveways may be temporarily blocked and the contractor will negotiate suitable timing with residents. Some trees may be removed and they will be assessed by wildlife spotters as required before removal. 8.7km of pipeline was completed by the end of October.

Design of the water treatment plant commenced in June. Components will be fabricated off-site, and on-site work will commence later this year.
